Short Fat Old Guy's Motorcycle Picker Upper
SFOGMPU

      Some of us are severely restricted in the amount of weight we can lift. My limit is
 supposed to be 15 pounds although I regularly lift up to 30. I can pick up a bike using the
 "Harley" method but a few seconds later I become dizzy and I have, on occasion, passed
 out.
      While watching a video of old guys on a tour through Mexico, I saw a downed bike
 picked up by a ratchet device. I knew then that with such a tool I could ride again. I found
 one which was hand made by another old guy. Motobike Jacks sell for $250 plus shipping.
 They look great but I can't afford the teriff.
      I resolved to build one from easily available parts which didn't require any welding or
 special tools. The result was the SFOGMPU. I am considering changing the name to
 SFOGMcPU but I am concerned that I might offend the Scotts. The important thing is,
 you can build one yourself if you want to. You don't even have to be a short, fat, old guy.       So, go knock yourself out. Let me know how it comes out.
